In the first ever book-length study of the popular Shakespearean comedy As You Like It, Hunt demonstrates how the play represented issues of interest to playgoers at the time the play was written, as well as speculatively to Shakespeare himself. Utilizing six different contemporary perspectives ranging from ideas of the gentleman to Judeo-Christian conceptions, Hunt enables a better understanding of the play's original contexts of performance and interpretation.
